A new tuning package for the BMW 530d arrives from AC Schnitzer. This program enhances the appearance as well as the performance of the vehicle. BMW refers to the new 5-series as "Dynamics in its most beautiful form" while AC Schnitzer describes its interpretation as "Dynamics in its most beautiful form - beyond the standard."

In particular, AC Schnitzer fitted the car with extra wings as well as a range of special accessories, a new front spoiler, chromed grille, rear skirt insert, a rear roof spoiler and rear spoiler.

The car rides on either 19 or 20-inch Type IV wheels in BiColor or silver. The option between the Type VIII rim and the Forged Alloy Type V rim is also offered. The interior of the 530d gets an "Evo" sports airbag steering wheel with optional carbon steering wheel insert in black "Exclusiv.”

The interior also received the aluminum cover for the i-Drive System Controller, aluminum foot rests and pedals set, and gear knobs in leather, aluminum (black anodized), with leather and illumination or digital gear display. Boot and foot mats in velours. AC Schnitzer boosted the output of the 530d to deliver 286 hp instead of 245 hp.

It also features a new exhaust featuring twin sport tailpipes, high-performance brakes with 8-piston calipers and 374x36 mm brake discs and a stiffer suspension.

AC Schnitzer is currently working to increase the power of the 520d, 525d and 535d, which in their standard form, develop 184 hp, 204 hp and 300 hp respectively. AC Schnitzer claims that it can improve any model from the 5-series.
